Named after the Cathars, a dualistic religious sect that once lived in the Languedoc. Among other things, the Cathars believed in two gods: one good and one bad, as well as in reincarnation and vegetarianism.
The popularity and heresy of these beliefs was challenging to the Catholic Church, especially because the Cathars refused to pay the Catholic Church's tithe, so the church started a series of crusades that eventually exterminated the Cathars. All that is left of the Cathars are a few remnant buildings and a regional dialect (the langue d'oc).
